Balayage Dark Hair – Which is the Best Option For You?

When it comes to hairstyles and coloring, brunettes are truly spoiled for choice! There are just so many cool looks to try. Balayage is undoubtedly one of the hottest styles at the moment. However, it comes in so many different varieties and color combinations, that it’s not always easy choosing the look right for you. After all, you need to make sure that your new hairstyle matches your skin tone, compliments your face, and looks natural with the shade of your hair. So, in order to make things easier, we’ve decided to devote today’s article on the different balayage dark hair varieties. Our team has included plenty of tips and lots of photos to inspire you.

For anyone unfamiliar with the term balayage, it’s a type of subtle hair highlighting, characterized by a gradual transition from darker roots to lighter tips. The result is a gorgeous, sun-kissed look, which seems more natural than regular highlights or ombre, for example. Not surprisingly, many women simply adore balayage. It’s relatively easy to maintain, and doesn’t require visiting the hairdresser every month for root touch ups. And, according to some of the best professionals in the field, it is an excellent option for women who want to add some subtle glamour to their tresses. It’s also a great solution for those pesky white hairs that start appearing after our 25th birthday! In short – only few hairstyles can match a well done balayage!

Before you opt for your own balayage, it’s very important to know the different varieties available. The California style is very hot at the moment, and looks amazing on brunette hair. Honey blonde hues are another excellent choice. The key is to stick to natural colors and ensure that you get an even, gradual transition from one shade to another. If natural is not really your thing, and you’d rather have something that makes you stand out from the crowd, we highly recommend dark red or pink balayage. Alternatively, you could opt for multicolored strands! They are cool, sexy and edgy!

Your natural color plays a very important role too. The concept “balayage dark hair” can mean very different things, depending on the hue of your tresses. After all, brunette locks come in numerous shades. Is your hair a deep brown, like Penelope Cruz’ or a lighter color like that of Emma Watson? Ladies with darker tresses should opt for a copper or hazel balayage, as it will blend well with their natural color, refreshing it in the process. Those with lighter hair, on the other hand, should choose hints of caramel or gold, for an authentic sun-kissed look.

Balayage dark hair is one of our absolute favorite styles and we can talk about it for ages. Nevertheless, it’s probably better tо give you some visual examples. We have done our best to select the very best brunette styles in our gallery bellow. Enjoy and don’t forget – it’s up to you to make your balayage as subtle and natural, or as eye-catching and colorful as you like. Experiment and have fun!
